Month of Allah

Muslim reported from Abu Hurayra (Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, "The best of fasts after the month of Ramadan are in the Month of Allah, which you call Muharram. And the best of prayer after the obligatory prayer is the night prayer." [Muslim, 1163]

Morality and Legality

Al-Nahl (The Bees) Sura 16: Verse 90

"God commands justice, the doing of good, and giving to [one's] relatives; and He forbids all that is shameful, and that runs counter to reason, in addition to aggression; He exhorts you so that you may bear this in mind."

Sighting of the Moon

More than 1.5 billion Muslims around the world organize their religious and cultural life according to the Muslim calendar, which is determined by phases of moon, making each month last either 29 or 30 days. Islamic years span on average between 354 and 355 days.  Moon sighting is hard because the crescent of first day is very thin and seen for less than ten minutes. In Muslim countries as well as among the Muslim minorities across the world, a moon-sighting committee is set up to witness the first sighting of the crescent moon and determine the start of an Islamic month.

Message of Consolation

Al-e-Imran (The House of Imran) - Chapter 3: Verse 195 (partial)

"... Never will I allow to be lost the work of any of you, whether male or female ..."

Loving Hasan

Abu Hurayrah reports: 'Whenever I see Hasan, my eyes are filled with tears because the Prophet (peace be upon him) went out one day and found me in the mosque. He took me by the hand and I walked with him. He did not speak to me until we reached the Qaynuqa market. He walked there and looked around then he left and I went with him until we returned to the mosque He sat and wrapped himself in his garment. He asked: "Where is the little one? Call me the little one". Hasan came running until he fell in the Prophet's lap, and put his hand in the Prophet's beard. The Prophet opened his mouth and Hasan's mouth touched the Prophet's mouth. The Prophet then said: "My Lord! Love him and love anyone who loves him".' [Bukhari]
